MOSCOW, June 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of Ukrainian refugees in Russian regions’ temporary accommodation centers has reached 17,000, the Russian Emergencies Ministry (EMERCOM) spokesman said.
“As of today, 245 temporary accommodation centers have been organized. A total of 17,010 people, including 7,239 children, are staying there,” Alexander Drobyshevsky told ITAR-TASS on Monday. “In addition, a total of 3,500 people have been placed in seven mobile temporary accommodation centers,” he said.
Forced migrants are transported to other Russian regions from the Rostov region and Crimea, Drobyshevsky said. “The Emergencies Ministry’s aircraft have delivered almost 3,000 people to the areas of Central, Southern and North Caucasian regions,” he said. The ministry’s convoys have transported over 1,700 refugees to other regions. “Tonight, 117 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Volgograd from the Rostov region,” Drobyshevsky said.
Last week an EMERCOM helicopter delivered seventeen refugees to the Volgograd region. Certain refugees arrived in the Volgograd region on their own. The Volgograd region’s migration service has registered 2,047 Ukrainian citizens: at least 400 people have asked for temporary residence. Over 239 refugees are staying now at temporary accommodation centers.
The region’s healthcare ministry has organized free medical care for refugees.
